Solution

The correct option is A 1 only
Statement 1 is correct because 'incitement to an offence' is a reasonable restriction on free spech under Article 19 (2)

Statement 2 is incorrect because inflammatory speech is not necessarily a direct incitement to an offence. It has to be decided on a case-to-case basis. The word 'inflammatory' remains subjective
